Landcare member, Cathy, sent in photos of this unusual fungus she saw recently.

A member of the Stinkhorn group, the stemless receptacle of this fungus emerges from its ‘egg’ at maturity, often quite suddenly. Not common, though widely distributed in forests, we have also seen these odd little fungi on the hill near our house.
